choosing best heating system for your Portland home

Sometimes it’s good to have options, but sometimes it can be a little overwhelming. Especially when it comes to choosing the right heating system for your Portland home.

At Heat Relief Heating & Cooling, we offer you furnaces, heat pumps and ductless split systems to warm your Portland area home during the cold months to keep you and your family comfortable. And our team of HVAC experts can help you decide on a system that is right for your needs.


The majority of households in North America use central furnaces for heat in their homes. Furnaces work by blowing heated air through ducts that deliver the air throughout the home via registers or grills. Furnaces can be powered by electricity, natural gas or oil.

With gas-powered furnaces, the fuel is mixed with air and burned. The flames from this is pushed through the heat exchanger by the air handler’s furnace fan and then forced through the ductwork. Heat Relief offers the best gas-powered furnaces by Bryant with variable speeds for exceptional heating efficiency.

Heat Pumps

A heat pump does double duty—it searches for heat that’s present in the air, no matter if it’s winter or summer. During the winter, heat pumps look for heat in the ground and outside with the assistance of an electrical system, and then distributes that warm air throughout the house.

Because heat pumps don’t generate heat like furnaces, they are more energy-efficient than most heating systems.

Ductless Mini-Split Systems

Did you know that using air ducts to distribute air throughout your house is generally something seen mostly in North America? Using a ductless split system is more cost-effective when it comes to replacing electric resistance heating.

Right now, you’ll find most ductless systems in new residential additions, workshops, converted attics, etc. If you have rooms that you don’t use often, such as guest bedrooms, you could save energy being able to choose what room you should heat or cool.
